Uneven, Dull or Lifeless Skin, Wrinkles, Open Pores, Pigmentation, Scarring, Stretch Marks or Hair loss... Your solution is Dermaroller! Our skin is not only the biggest organ, but it also protects the body against environmental influences such as temperatures, bacteria, excessive water loss, etc. Skin increases in thickness until the age of 20 and stays constant for about 40 years. After 60 the skin degrades. The normal average human skin has a thickness of 1.5 mm and is categorized in 3 major zones: Epidermis, (0.12 mm) dermis and sub-dermis (1.5 mm). The Epidermis has 5 layers in total; the top layer is called the Stratum Corneum. Its thickness is about a hundredth of a millimetre, and it is hard to believe that this thin layer is the main barrier and protection for our body. The Stratum Corneum is constantly reproduced by the lower epidermal layers. It is so effective that nearly nothing can penetrate it.
So what percentage of your skincare regime actually penetrates into viable layers where the active ingredient can stimulate the skin?
100% 50% 30% 10% 3% 1%
Depending on the ‘delivery system’ used in the formulation, the penetration can vary from each skincare brand to the next. Generic, no name brands probably have less than 1% penetration -clinical cosmeceutical brands probably have closer to 30%... but there is still a 70% waste of each application. The Dermaroller is clinically proven to drive active ingredients deeper into the skin, by a manual delivery system. It will enhance penetration of any ingredient with 200 times more delivery, dramatically giving value and additional results to any skincare regime.
• Clean skin with a cleanser
• Apply a booster or serum to be enhanced
• Apply skincare product in a thin layer and start “Dermarolling”
• Roll between 2-5 minutes
• After the Dermaroller procedure, apply the recommended Moisturizer
• When you start to use the Dermaroller for the first time, only use it every 3rd day.
• When your skin becomes accustomed you may use it in shorter intervals
• Never apply high pressure on the Dermaroller!
• Never apply lateral pressure! This may result in scratches and needle damage.
• Roll each part of the skin 3 times in all four directions – horizontally, vertically and both diagonals.
• We recommend using the Dermaroller before bedtime.
• Be patient! Your skin needs time to regenerate!
• Make sure your personal Dermaroller is properly cleaned – use the ROLLER CLEANER as directed.
Epidermis increases in thickness
In recent research we found out that even the short needles of the homecare Dermaroller (C8) with a needle length of only 0.18 to 0.20mm (0.0078 inch) have a positive effect on the epidermis without any skincare products. Many people believe that the epidermis consists just of "dead" skin cells, but this is not the case. It is the contrary! Especially in the lowest layer, the basal membrane, we can observe very vital processes.
What influence have the fine needles of the Dermaroller on the epidermis?
The renewal cycle of the epidermal cells is between 2 and 4 weeks. In aged skin this process is prolonged. From research in the laboratories of MatTek™ and Owen Biosciences™ (USA) with the Dermaroller® we know that even short needles influence the cell communication by electrical signals, especially in the basal membrane. Transmitted Growth Factors (TGF) signals stimulate and accelerate the cell proliferation of keratinocytes, basal cells, etc. This stimulation caused by Dermarolling the skin reduces the proliferation cycle and increases the cell production of undifferentiated and differentiated cells. This results in an increase of the epidermis of 30% and more. The skin (over time) is pushed upward and finally forms the stratum corneum.
With a slower cell cycle, aged skin often has a matte, grayish appearance. This is caused by the slowed cell proliferation and also the keratin scales building up on the surface. This lack of transparency is the substantial optical difference between young and old skin. These matte scales (1 or 2 layers out of about 20) are removed by the fine needles of the Dermaroller.
The Home Care Dermaroller combines several advantages :
Increase of the epidermal cells and the improvement of transparency.
In order to achieve this effect, the Dermaroller may be used only 2 to 3 times per week. Verifiably suitable skin care products can support this effect.
The following observations were reported to us by users of the homecare Dermaroller after they have used it for 2 to 3 months:
1. Reduction of pore skin / reduction of sebum production (oil flow).
2. A reduction of monthly breakouts.
3. A softer and more transparent skin.
4. A stronger, resilient, more protected skin.
